PHOTOGRAPHER: MADALYN ROWELL
WARDROBE: ZWINA HABIBI
LOCATION: HIDDEN BEACH
"I was so excited when I was approached to shoot accessories for Zwina for Maidens. We decided on shooting at the beach in the beginning of September, which meant lots of soft yellow light and leaves on the ground. I wanted to experiment with a new technique I learned for shooting, and also included my usual "bag of tricks" by shooting through my collection of kaleidoscopes and prisms I've collected over the years. The effect offers a different way to shoot by combining different angles in the same shot, which I feel correlates with how I personally access any situation-from any and every angle I can possibly see." - Madalyn
Zwina Habibi, the Moroccan-born, London-based label aims to bridge the gap between the Islamic world and the West, a catalyst for connection between two cultures and a beacon of amicability on a small yet important scale. Classic yet contemporary in design, the bags and shoes are cut for switched-on, carefree and vibrant women ready to take on the world!
